3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear honey golden-amber, with a silky white rim. Really juicy, gummy fresh hop aroma. Honeydew, plums, light pale cherries and lots of tropical fruit and citrus. Woah. Alcoholic bright grassy hop flavor. A different hop flavor presentation that the aroma. Grassy, resin-filled, pine, and almond skins. A little overly bitter and alcoholic, but holds the texture of the hop oils. Dry and balanced, largely.
Outstanding beer! Wonderful grapefruit notes and strong hoppy taste that stays with you. Smooth yet firm. Great color. Great, great beer. djd07 (15089) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is pine, floral, grass. Medium mouth, light bitterness, citrus, light dry finish, very good. corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a very cloudy, very dark golden orange color with light tangerine edges and a 1.5 finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Really good retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Dank resinous hop aroma with lots of pine needle, spruce tip and earthy grass character. This is countered by a subtle citrus presence along with boozy sweetness and a caramel malt backbone.
On the fuller end of medium bodied with a very dry and dank earthy hop presence that lingers over the malt backbone and boozy sweetness into a slightly dry finish. Dry, sticky and bitter with aggressive hops up front. The hop profile is a bit one dimensional however with only very subtle citrus character. Could use some more sweetness for balance. Malt backbone is a bit too heavy for my liking with notes of caramel, toffee and biscuit followed by boozy heat in finish. Decently hoppy but alcohol and strong malt flavors hinder the flavor a bit. kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Golden and cloudy with a ton of white foamy head. Nice grapefruit and apricot flavor to it. Hoppy and bitter but flows smooth. Good shizz rob27 (1) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 4, 2014 does not count
Fresh clean taste while drinking but leaves strong bitter after taste that lingers for hours.

Pours an amber color with a full bouquet of flowers emitting from it. Taste is crisp but distinctly bitter. The full hops taste overpowers this beer, leaving it all on the palate after the swallow. A mild clove and lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. A good Imperial IPA, just not my style. alliance100 (1157) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014

A double IPA for a fortnight and a day #12...
Light amber color with mild head and not very carbonated. Of course very hoppy aroma with citrus notes. Very smooth. Initial bitterness gives way to great flavor that quickly diminishes. A bit spicy also. Not too heavy on flavor and it sits a little lower on the palate than I like alkolas510 (1437) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2013
Bärnstensfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum! Massor med humle lite malt i doft och smak! Ganska besk! Mycket bra öl! b3shine (8929) - Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a semi-transparent deep orange with thin foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; hoppy with a fairly big pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.
